  • Very nice enclosure and increasingly become best exhibitions and samples. My children spent very well the visit as well as the projection in the IMAX. Hopefully soon more samples the talented local (there are many) and also of international stature, because the city of Tijuana is worth it.

  • Upon arrival it is some what confusing where to buy tickets to enter the theater. Ounce i spoke with a representative i was able to locate the entrance and begin my wonderful experience. I walked inside and took a seat, the ceiling of the theather engulfed me completely. I was looking at the underside of a blue whale as is swam across the screen from one side of the screen to the other. The movie was projected on the rounded ceiling of the dome shaped movie theater. It was a wonderful experience, it felt as if i was staring directly at some amazing wildlife creatures. Just some things to note would be that the movies are in spanish the times i have gone they only had on selection to choose from. They are all nature movies that would be great for children. There is a cafe where you buy the tickets and make sure to get a seat high up since looking straight up might hurt your eye sight somewhat. There is also a few art exhibits but i was not able explore since they all have a entrance fee i mostly wanted to check out the dome theatre.
  • It’s GREAT THAT FREE EVENTS ARE HELD HERE TO BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER. That way everyone can be a part of the community activity. Had a great time with my daughter this past weekend but also we have been coming here since she was 5 to join in on weekend art clubs, reading and museum. Everyone should support this place! Keep up the good job.
  • Is a verry good place to bring the family bar .food teather..espectaculos maravilloso lugar no caro..eventoas gratis
  • It has many activities and shows going on during all year long. Great place to spend time with your kids or even enjoy a convention or reading of your liking. I spent all my childhood sundays there on the DIY and reading workshops and more recently attended the anime conventions. Has an IMAX cinema and a theatre, I watched Swan Lake and Annie there when I was younger too.
  • Really well done! I was surprised by the number of exhibits and the quality as well. A fun place!
